MLA describes the discovery of suspected pipe bombs ‘reckless’


North Antrim DUP MLA and Policing Board Member Mervyn Storey has described as reckless the action of those who left ‘suspended’ pipe bombs at the Agivey bridge and at another location on the Bendoragh Road outside Ballymoney.

Commenting Mervyn Storey said: “What ever the intent or whoever was involved in bringing these devices to these locations, it is dangerous and reckless. No cause is served by these actions.

“Haven spoke to the local PSNI Commander this morning I have been assured that all action will be taken to find those responsible for this incident and ensure the community is safe.

“The local community has been disrupted and actions like this just bring unnecessary fear and anxiety.

“I would appeal to anyone who has any information that would be useful to the Police to contact the PSNI.”
